    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I have been a big ball of gas here lately and off and on I have been having these pains in my chest that last a second or 2 they are painful and in between my boobs kind of at the top of my sternum a little to the left or right! Its been going on for a long while! They are starting to worry me! Could this be from acid reflux? I have heart burn some but not all the time! I thought you might be able to ease my mind till then! Burping releaves it for a while then it will shoot another pain after 40 min or so....Let me know what you think!! My doc says gas or reglux??? Does anyone else have this pain I am talking about cause I think my anxiety is making it worse!!!

    Look up Heliobacter Pylori. Also, if you do have it and even if you don't know for sure and the antacids are not working, try Mastic Gum and see If the symptoms go away.
